2 How To Apply for financial aid A college education is one of the most important investments you and your family can make. You will be expected to contribute as much as you can (income, savings, and other assets) to help meet your college expenses. Financial aid will help you make up the difference and achieve your goal of a degree. The Office of Student Financial Aid is here to help. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) serves as the application for all federal, state, and University of Houston-Clear Lake need-based financial aid programs as well as some non-need-based programs. file by march 1 UHCL recommends that students file the FAFSA no later than March 1 to be considered for the most need-based aid and to ensure the results reach us by our March 15 priority deadline. If necessary, families can use estimated financial information on the FAFSA, rather than data from a completed federal tax return, in order to meet the first-priority deadline. Please note that some financial aid is limited and is awarded on a firstcome, first-served basis. FAFSA on the Web Filing on is the fastest and most efficient way. The student (and parent of a dependent undergraduate student) should use a federal Personal Identification Number (PIN) to sign the FAFSA electronically. You (and your parent(s), if applicable) can apply for a PIN at We recommend that students and parents use the IRS Data Retrieval when completing the FAFSA. This tool will help ensure your information is accurate. It saves time, too! If you prefer, a paper FAFSA can be obtained by calling the Federal Student Aid Information Center at FEDAID ( ). Our federal school code number is and must be listed on your FAFSA for UHCL to receive the results.
3 Your Award The Office of Student Financial Aid at UHCL will send you an (to your UHCL account) to let you know your award is ready. You can then log into E-Services to view and accept your financial aid. Some types of financial aid (e.g., grants or scholarships) will show on your online award letter as both offered and accepted. Other types of financial aid (e.g., loans or work-study) will show on your online award letter as offered only. You will then accept, reduce, or decline these awards. After You Apply The federal processor puts the data reported on your FAFSA through a formula called the Federal Methodology and sends the results known as the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) to UHCL. Your EFC will be shown on your Student Aid Report (SAR). The difference between the cost and your EFC is your financial need. The federal processor uses several edits to test the accuracy of the data reported on your FAFSA. The federal processor flags some students for verification. If your application is selected, you may be asked to provide the following: Copy of your and/or your spouse s or parents Federal Income Tax Transcript W2 forms for you and/or your spouse or parents Verification Worksheet Satisfactory Academic Progress All students receiving financial aid are required by federal regulations to meet satisfactory academic progress (SAP) guidelines as defined by our office.

Students will receive a UHCL OneCard in the mail when they register for classes. It is important to activate the card, choosing one of three refund preferences (debit card, ACH transfer to existing bank account, or paper check). If the financial aid disbursed to a student account creates a credit balance, students may charge books and supplies to their student accounts in the UHCL Bookstore. The cashier s office will refund any credit balance beginning the first week of classes.

5 Loans Loans are the most common type of financial aid used by students and are considered self-help aid because they must be repaid. There are various steps required if you choose to borrow a student loan. This section lists the most common loans offered to students.

Estimated Direct Loan Repayment Amounts, by Type of Repayment Plan and Debt Amounts. 1 (Use this table for loans disbursed on or after July 1, 2006.) 1. Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Loans Degree-seeking students are eligible to borrow a Federal Direct Stafford Loan. Undergraduate students showing financial need are awarded subsidized loans. For all subsidized loans, the U.S. Department of Education pays the interest while the borrower is in school and during grace or deferment periods. Federal Direct Stafford Loans will enter repayment following a six-month grace period. There are different repayment plans available to meet different needs. The U.S. Department of Education has many repayment calculators online. In addition, the chart to the right shows examples of some Stafford Loan repayment plans. Under certain circumstances, borrowers can receive periods of deferment or forbearance that allow them to postpone loan repayment. A deferment is a period of time during which no payments are required and interest does not accrue (except on unsubsidized loans). To qualify for a deferment, borrowers must meet specific eligibility requirements. The most common loan deferment conditions are enrollment in school at least half-time, inability to find full-time employment, and economic hardship. 3. Additional Loan Resources If you need additional financial assistance beyond the loan(s) offered to you as part of our normal awarding process, the parent of a dependent student may apply for a Federal Direct PLUS Loan. Or you may apply for a private alternative loan. Most private alternative loans do require a creditworthy applicant or co-signer for the loan to be approved. Graduate students have the option of applying for a Graduate Direct PLUS loan in their own name or may also apply for a private alternative loan.

Forbearance occurs when the lender agrees to either temporarily reduce or postpone student loan payments. Interest continues to accrue during forbearance. Your loan eligibility will be calculated when your award package is completed. In E-Services, you will be able to accept, reduce, or decline the loan(s) offered to you.

7 Withdrawing from School FAQs When will I get my financial aid? Students may officially withdraw on E-services. When a student withdraws prior to completing 60 percent of the term, they have not earned all of their federal financial aid. As a result, a Return of Title IV Funds calculation must be performed. We are required to return the lesser of the unearned portion of federal aid or of the total institutional charges (tuition and fees, housing charges, etc.) billed to the student. Funds which may need to be returned if you withdraw: Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loans Subsidized Direct Stafford Loans Perkins Loans PLUS Loans Pell Grants Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG) TEACH Grants The unearned portion of aid is returned to the Federal Direct Student Loan program or other federal aid program. For example, if a student completes only 20 percent of the term, then he or she has failed to earn 80 percent of the federal financial aid that was disbursed, or could have been disbursed, prior to the withdrawal. If the return of the funds creates a balance due on the student account, the student will be responsible to pay the balance on their UHCL student account. Also, students who receive all F or a combination of F and WX or WQ grades are considered to be unofficial withdrawals. These grades do not confirm attendance or participation in the entire semester in any class, so a Return of Title IV Funds calculation must be performed. Students should contact the Office of Student Financial Aid prior to withdrawing to discuss implications caused by withdrawing. Each semester, the Office of Student Financial Aid begins disbursing financial aid to students accounts about a week before classes begin. The cashier s office posts the disbursements and deducts any tuition and fees owed. If the financial aid disbursed creates a credit balance, students may charge books and supplies to their student account in the UHCL Bookstore. The Cashier s Office will process refunds to students with financial aid credit balances the first week of classes. All refunds are processed through Higher One. If you have not done so, please activate your UHCL OneCard prior to the first day of classes. Will my financial aid be renewed each year? Financial aid is not automatically renewed or guaranteed. You must reapply for financial aid each year by completing the FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA, preferably by March 1. Who do I contact for financial aid questions? You can contact our office by phone or to get help with any general questions. It is important to know that each student is assigned a financial aid counselor based on the first letter of their last name. This information is kept up to date on our website, Office Information.
